Harris still eyeing Nebraska unofficial

Although Bret Harris hasn't got a chance to get to see Lincoln yet, he has meant well. This past week was about the third time where an attempt was made to get up to Lincoln from Irving (Texas) and it just didn't happen. Now Harris is eyeing another possible trip with one of his teammates to see Lincoln in August.

Bret Harris is one of Nebraska's top targets at the safety position. The 5-foot-11 and 180 pound Harris from Irving (Texas) MacArthur was supposed to make it up to Lincoln, but it didn't happen.

"No, I never went," Harris said. "I just couldn't make it that day."

Time has really become an enemy to making any unofficial trips. If it doesn't happen this summer, Harris will have to wait until he can take an official visit.

"I know that if I don't get up there before the summer is out that I am going up there the weekend that they play Texas."

There won't be any mixed feeling seeing Nebraska play Texas. Harris amazingly grew up following some other teams other than Texas.

"Actually when I was little I never really liked Texas. I grew up watching Nebraska. You know, like Eric Crouch? I never really was a Texas fan."

"I am from Texas my whole life, but I grew up watching Nebraska, Miami or Florida State instead. I am not really a fan of theirs. I don't know."

If Harris takes that trip to Nebraska this summer he might not be coming by himself. There are three players from MacArthur that have Nebraska offers and Harris would be traveling with at least one of them.

"It might be Ron Brooks and I or might just be me by myself if I get a chance to get up there before football starts."

By all of the latest updates, Brooks didn't have a lot of interest in Nebraska. If those are 100% accurate, then Harris and Brooks haven't talked about it. Harris hasn't spoken to his other teammate about making the trip to Lincoln.

"If Ron has eliminated Nebraska he hasn't told me about that. I haven't talked to Kelly Griffin about recruiting in a while."

MacArthur is loaded this year, not like they aren't any other year, but this year they seem to be exceptionally athletic. Harris will help that out even more by going both ways and lining up all over the place.

"I have a good feeling about this season. I think that we will be ready. I will be playing both ways. I will be playing safety on defense and wide receiver and running back on offense."

Nebraska isn't the only leader to not get a trip from Harris. If things go well, Harris will see two of his leaders before fall camp opens.

"My favorites are Arkansas, Nebraska and Oklahoma State. I didn't get to take any trips this summer. If everything goes right I will get out to see Arkansas and Nebraska before two a days. Fall camps starts August 14."
